Welcome to Blueacre ...

Although we found mention of Blueacre during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Blueacre was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..

We've added Blueacre to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Blueacre, please Contact Us.


We aren't confident of the location of Blueacre, so consider the above location as an estimate.<2>

Blueacre is 5,930 feet [1,807 m] above sea level.<3> In other words, the altitude of Blueacre is about 1¼ mile [or ~1¾ km] above sea level.

Time Zone: The area where we believe that Blueacre might be (or was) located is in the Mountain Time Zone (MST/MDT) and observes daylight saving time

Note: If you leave Blueacre and travel west, you will leave Mountain Time and cross into the Pacific Time Zone (PST/PDT).

We believe that Blueacre would be found within the (435) area code.

Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went north past Blueacre and then turned west". While Blueacre could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Blueacre as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Bird Creek to see Pete ... Bird Creek is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Blueacre could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong county. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.
<2>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Blueacre - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Blueacre) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Blueacre. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from BlueacreOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Blueacre. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 38.4837, Longitude: -113.1297       In this case, the coordinates for Blueacre have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
